It's a frozen Friday, and it's also my birthday. Many thanks to everyone who's sent good wishes! On to the links from others...

From Bunny: What D&D character are you? We are disgusted to report that we are both humans - him a sorcerer and me a wizard. There's some longwinded explanation about the difference between the two that he can provide if you like.

From Cassandra: Tetris may help treat PTSD; there were dinosaurs in Siberia and no one knows how they died (or how they lived in such a cold climate, for that matter); and EW asks which R-rated movie you saw too young. (For me, it wasn't even R-rated; I saw part of Nosferatu as an urchin and was freaked out for years.)

From Jen: the apocalyptic sculptures of Kris Kuksi are absolutely amazing.

From Nicole: Batgirl takes on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in the battle of fair play!

Swiped from Gary Price's ResourceShelf: a collection of inaugural speeches dating back to McKinley's presidency is available for free viewing on Hulu now.

And finally, just for fun: look at the fractalized felines you can create with the right tool on Photoshop. Gorgeous stuff.

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! I'll be off on Monday, back on Tuesday. See you then.

Happy Birthday, my friend!
I hope you are properly celebrated. I wish I could take you to lunch today.

I loved the D&D quiz! I am a Chaotic Neutral Human Wizard (6th Level)Bunny will have to tell me what it means.

The rated R movie that scarred me for life was "Don't Go in the House." My cousin and I always watched scary movies together for fun. Usually, when watching, we'd climb the walls, screaming, "get out! get out! Don't go in there!" We'd stand up on the couch holding onto each other, laughing. However, when we both watched Don't Go in the House at a tender young age, we sat there silently. After it was over, we went outside and played, we didn't even mention the movie! HAHAHAHAHAA!

Quite traumatizing, indeed! We should've played tetris afterwards.

Happy Birthday :)
The weather on Wed is going to be downright balmy in comparison to today so it looks like I'm coming in for the LOST premiere if you fancy a birthday dinner!! Just let me know!

I saw FAME too young. I just mostly didnt get parts of it.
